Dr. Shah Patient Testimonials
  •          


    Dr. V. Shah did a wonderful job on my total hip replacement. I wasn't able to walk more than 10 minutes without extreme pain. I had a previous fracture in my hip which made the case more complicated. He was assuring and answered all my questions and then some. He also got high praise from my family for the time he took post-op to explain the surgery and recovery process to my family. He followed up on my recovery frequently and went about and beyond what most physicians do today. I can't recommend Dr. V. Shah more highly for any case big or small. No need to go to Chicago for complex cases as Dr. Shah has the expertise to handle all cases.

    I'm a very active 67 y/o woman who was unable to walk more than 10 yards without having severe knee and leg pain. I had a total knee replacement by Dr. Vineet Shah in early April and one week after surgery I was able to walk independently with little pain. Under his plan of care, I healed very quickly and returned to my normal activities in only about 6 weeks. Dr. Shah explained everything thoroughly, answered all my questions and really made me feel that he cared as much about getting me back to my normal as Idid. His staff is friendly, caring, helpful and courteous. I have had nothing but a great experience. I am forever grateful to Dr. Shah for giving me my life back. I am totally pain free and active again.

    He promised to treat my mother like his mother and he did. Took all of the anxiety away from having the hip replacement surgery. Recovery was excellent as she experienced very little pain and is back to what she's been doing. Thank you Dr. Shah. You've been a blessing to my mother and our family. I'd certainly recommend you.

    Due to the complexity of my case, I thought I would need to go to Chicago but after my first visit with Dr. Shah I knew that wasn't necessary. He reviewed my case and conferred with his colleagues in detail. I felt assured and confident in his recommendation and the results of the surgery are proof I made the best decision. I am 200% sure I wouldn't have received any better care and treatment in Chicago. He is the best and I would highly recommend Dr. Shah for any case big or small.

    Dr. Shah is very professional. He operated on my knee. I was up and walking the same day. He doesn't push you to have surgery. He explains everything from the beginning to the end.

    Dr. Shah was recommended by my oncologist to see about me knee pain. I waited far too long to have any help with the pain I was having. Set up appt., got in to see Dr. Shah, after having the tests done at the hospital so that he could see the problem... Dr. Shah showed me on xray the severity of the problem,,, told him to schedule as soon as possible as I could no longer accept the pain.. he scheduled operation the next week, walked the next day after full replacement on knee. Why did I wait!
